Here are the top ten chains, according to the survey:
4. Taco Bell
6. Dairy Queen
7. Five Guys
9. Burger King
10. In-N-Out Burger
The people behind Wendy's sinister Twitter account have probably helped propel the chain to its perch on top of America's fast food pile. Despite being a global hamburger oligopoly, McDonald's ranked a shocking 29th among respondents. Chipotle came in 10th, even with its free burrito cavalcades occurring seemingly every week, and Carl's Jr., which can't quite scrap with the heavyweights online, notched the 18th spot.
But rest assured, if you're the kind of person who cares about these things, the results of the survey in no way reflect an accurate assessment of the most beloved fast food joints nationwide. Earlier this month, a Foursquare study showing the most popular chain in every sate showcased a very different national sentiment towards fast food, and one that was decidedly in love with Chick-fil-A.
